The Partners for Asthma Management Planning and Education Resources (PAMPER) program was implemented from 2000-2001 and was overseen by the Linn County Asthma Reduction Coalition in conjunction with the Healthy Linn Care Network in Cedar Rapids, IA.  The goals of the program included empowering patients and parents to better manage asthma; developing medication provider and community education programs to ensure common disease management protocol; and maintaining student health during school days.  

Children from 6 months to 16 years with asthma and their parents or caregivers received 8 hour-long sessions over six months with a nurse in the home or school setting that covered daily adherence to the patients' asthma management plan and family practice of home/school management and intervention strategies including trigger reduction and avoidance.

Evaluations indicated a positive impact on several health outcomes for children with asthma, including healthcare utilization, school absences, symptoms, medication use, and use of an asthma action plan.
